Eek Show us something that you MADE...

That will make everybody say Wow

No offense to anybody but is been about three years since I check the G-Spot and it feels like a episode of "All my children" or even better like a Mexican photo Novelia that you can stop watching for a long time but at the end you don't miss much, Yes the protagonist and the nomenclature chance but the plot stays pretty much the same.

So shows us something radical, Something new, Something that keep spinning in your Head until you can not resist anymore to the point you need to make it happen since the object is not available anywhere at any price.

Thanks for participating from the bottom of my heart

Ps: Try to make this Post using visual aids like pictures of the objects or at least drawings that explain what it does and how it works as oppose to rhetorical pursues that lead nowhere.

Some of the ideas and craftmanship were great; some of the workmanship had me

Here is my ongoing submission of DIY.

Hey mate, your bike is too clean to be out in the wild and dangerous... I can't see a spec of dirt anywhere... nice mods though :)

Looks to me that you relocated the swingarm pivot point, yes?
I'm inclined to think the front tracking might be a bit vague though.
And the bars CMU.

It's a '83 that needed an engine rebuild. The PO was mechanical enough to take it apart and stop there.
Good call on the swingarm pivot point. I made a simple bracket that bolts on via the rear engine mount bolts. The entire bike can be brought 100% back to stock in about a day. Nothing was permanently altered.
It certainly doesn't handle as well as my brother's 450EXCR, but went OK.
Typical HD, it makes a lot of noise and looks cool, but I'd rather be riding my Jap bikes.
It came with those bars. Too much work to put others on there with all the wiring in the bars and a 1" diameter.
It'll be auctioned in spring.

I have a little question

How can it be that is a million Threads about GS Vs Gotzilla, or how much tire pressure you need to run when the weather is warm and the wind is blowing at 8.3miles per hour.

But nobody has anything to show even to say.

I'm been scanning the pages of the G-Spot for a few days and I have not found anything revolutionary, or even interesting is pretty much the same stuff i was reading when i left about 3 years ago, Yeah the models are different, but the flavor of the posting stay the same

really sad..

Well at least I promise you guys when I get my 1200 i will make a "Pennytech" windscreen that will make the stock one a lot quieter with out the need of a barndoor size piece of acrylic to fix the Freaking noise

Tiny, old, crappy video cap of a 6-string bass guitar I built from scratch. Even wound the pickup and built the preamp.

Aluminum Mirror Stems

Anyone willing to lend their talents to make two of these?







http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/mm5..._Code=F650CS-O

Bought two at 100 mm each, too fat and slightly too tall to be able to angle the mirror enough to even use either of em.

I could mail one out to be used as a guide - just need em longer, but $39 a piece plus shipping feels like another robbery from original seller.

I'd pay for parts, supply and time to the willing soul. It doesn't have to be polished and finished. Just don't have tools and specially the talent to make the rough cut.

Mango -- those look fairly easily cut, but 39 cash dollars american would be a fairly considerable bargain for them -- they will either be cut, manually, which takes time, or on computer-controlled equipment, the acquisition of which costs, and the programming taking, wait for it, time.

Unless you find a talented hobbyist (and there are some who can do outstanding work) who has a crush on your sister, I believe $39 from the manufacturer is likely the best way for you to go.
